I am an INFJ personality type, and find that I am very attracted to, and blend well with INTJ's. While I am inherently shy, I will open up fairly quickly once I get to know you. I really like people, and my sister says that I am the queen of "chitchat" in a social situation. I do not like head games and far prefer to deal openly, honestly and courteously (if at all possible) in all circumstances. A personal philosophy is that you can tell a lot about someone by the way they treat wait staff, receptionists, cab drivers, and phone customer service representatives. Sort of a variation on the "kids and dogs" maxim.
I am passionate about many things including my family (both genetic and found), my pets, my job, and my protective universe. But nothing on the exterior has the power to make me content or happy, and I am generally both. It is a much easier life to live when you are happy, don't you think? I have reached the point in my life that that I mostly like who I am, (there's always room for improvement), and I am seeking someone comfortable in their own skin that can accept me without trying to change me. I fully expect to reciprocate that respect.
That all being said, thank you for taking the time to read this far. If you are still interested I look forward to striking up a conversation.
Interesting that I find it necessary to post this, but here are some deal breakers:
1) Intolerance of others' sexual lifestyles. I am straight but have many friends in same sex relationships, several with children within the relationships.
2) Drug use. Whether casual or not, it is not something that will fit into my life
3) Dislike of animals. I understand many times pets do not fit into someone's life, but if you actually do not like animals, you are not a good match for me.
4) BDSM and/or multiples OR married. Good for you that you have found something you enjoy, but it is NOT for me. (And puh-leez!!! If you don't know what BDSM is, try Google. I know that you have a computer). I just recently had to clarify this statement because I guess it is not clear enough....for me it is NO to these sexual lifestyle choices.
